Happy Easter!

Today, my son has the honor of serving his first mass as an altar boy:

That's him in his garb during his installation mass a couple of weeks ago. I'm so proud of him, and he is SO excited!

It's such a perfect day for him to have his first mass...the day that my faith celebrates Jesus' resurrection.

It's also a bit of a sad day for me, though, because this is the first year that none of my children will be waiting for the Easter Bunny to show up. Natalie came to me not long ago and said she no longer believes. *sniff* (Santa still seems to be real for her though....I think it was the whole bunny-as-a-human deal that she is no longer buying into, lol).

But this day isn't about talking, magical bunnies anyway. It's about this:

(Wow...that last image makes me cry like a baby!)

A blessed day to all of you!

Congrats on altar boy. I didn't do much altar'ing (is that the gerund for it?) but that's because I was either playing trumpet with the organist, in the bell choir or in the youth choir and those took precedence.
